well. and mark halperin, i have heard from republicans that are very close to mitt romney that are tied in that campaign. and some have actually said it publicly that this election froze in place their momentum two, three days. you heard haley barbour say that publicly. i think karl may have said something as well. got a lot of people close to him inside that were saying this on friday, saying, you know, our internals just. soed. >> the crowds are huge. >> their crowds are huge. you followed romney and said the crowds -- you told me what everybody else is telling me, romney's crowds are absolutely electric. >> i saw the president in ohio and governor romney in ohio over the weekend. and there's no question that governor romney's crowds are big. the president's drew some big crowds this weekend, too, including saturday night in virginia with bill clinton, but there's no question that one of the things the romney people can seize on is the potential that they have more enthusiasm. plenty of enthusiasm for the president, too. but there's a lot of enthusiasm for mitt romney and for bea

mark, i like the ones and zeros. all the metrics go one way and all you hear from the romney folks are, but, there'll be republican enthusiasm and there'll be this turnout. and my only question in that is half the battleground states have already voted. half the vote is in. right. that's the problem. there isn't this sort of last-second surge you can affect in the way that say '76, right, ford gets the lead on the election, but election day carter has the bigger momentum and able to overtake ford at the end. none of that is quite there. so you do feel somehow romney's got to win today by huge numbers. in some places he's got to win election day to carry the state by eight or nine points. he's got older voters, they're reliable, going to show up. there's clearly been a republican enthusiasm difference between the two sides. but that's a lot of ground to make up in some of these states. >> that is a lot of ground to make up. and again, mika, the thing i've said all along, you're never in any campaign concerned so much about the spread between you and your opponent. you're concerned a

positioning himself for four years from now, he's undermining the romney campaign. are we reading too much into that? are they reading too much into that? >> doing just what you said, not just getting federal aid, but we saw it after 9/11 and other crises, what do people need? efficient delivery of services, but they also need inspirational leadership. and i think christie sees the value of having the president come to his state. every sound bite we showed from both of them, we're on this, we respond right away, we get what the problems are, and that's the kind of leadership as donny said if you're in public life, you must rise to the occasion and provide. remember, two of romney's top aides worked for chris christie in his gubernatorial race. they're very close to him. and yesterday they did a press conference call and one of them said we don't begrudge him doing what he's doing. he's trying to lead the state. i think this probably won't have much of an impact on the presidential race, that visit yesterday. elites like it a lot, but i don't know that people in battleground states do.

criticized for tilting towards romney. thor what's odd, the day-to-day military intelligence relationship between the united states and israel has arguably never been closer and more intimate. it really is tight. so the kinds of issues we've had in the last 24 hours, which is quite traditional, my hunch is that's okay in that scenario where the united states and israel can coordinate. what's also going to happen is this is now going to spread to the u.n., not just this emergency meeting of the security council, but the other palestinians in the west bank, the quote, unquote, more moderate palestinians. they want to increase their political status, move to something like statehood. and real question then is how does the united states and israel manage this. and it will make it much harder against this backdrop because again, there's a diplomatic vacuum. and people are going to look for ways to try to fill the vacuum in ways that israel and the united states don't want. and what the administration is hoping is it doesn't force us into the position where we have to isolate ourse
